EW has released some new promotional images from ‘Every Day’ featuring actors who play A. You can see the one featuring Lucas in the gallery along with an older photoshoot image from the Foxes Magazine shoot.
EW has released the first three promotional stills from ‘Every Day’. Sadly, none of them feature Lucas, but check them out anyway to get the feel of the movie. The release date has also been changed yet again, this time to February 23, 2018.
“The through line, I think, with all the 16 actors who play A, it really had something to do with the eyes,” Sucsy recalls. “Not the shape of the eyes… It’s a cliché or a phrase or an old adage — ‘the eyes are the window to the soul’ — and looking into these actors eyes in their audition, I saw a common thread that I suppose, if I were to shorthand it, would be something like an old soul and even though some of these actors were 15-20 years old, the thing that they all share in common is that they all really do have an old soul.”
“But I think they really achieve that with the casting,” she adds, “in that all of the people who played A have a specific quality about them that made them like the character.” Owen Teague (It), Lucas Jade Zumann (20th Century Women), Colin Ford (Under the Dome), Maria Bello (Prisoners), and Debby Ryan (Sing It!) help round out the main cast.
With Every Day scheduled for release on Feb. 23, 2018, Sucsy believes it’s a very modern story for today’s generation. “This generation of people [is] seeing the way the world is and can be with a wider perspective, a wider lens, that allows for things to be more beautiful and more complex, and like I said, less binary,” he says. “It’s a beautiful way to be seeing the world.”
According to Deadline, the release date of ‘Every Day’ has been pushed back from February 2, 2018 to April 27, 2018.
